An authentic carols experience at Sydney’s second-largest Christmas Carols in the heart of Ryde! The 27th annual Carols on the Common will kick off with live entertainment and Carols and will wrap up with a firework display. Don’t forget to bring a picnic blanket and some nibbles while you enjoy the festivities!
This year there will be more food stalls than ever before. Rides, face-painting and other amusements will also be available. It’s best to bring cash, as cards may not always be accepted. There will be a bucket collection and a carpark gold coin donation. Money raised on the night goes to worthy causes such as ROMAC – an organisation bringing sick and ill children from nations all over the world for life-changing surgery in Australia. With your help we can raise over $10 000 this year for ROMAC alone.
Water refill stations will be located around the venue so remember to bring a reusable water bottle on the night to stay hydrated! There will be no bottled water available.
Please minimise waste and take all rubbish with you at the end of the night and aim to take home everything you bring. There will be limited rubbish facilities onsite.
